Worst Panther in history to start at least 8 games?

137 posts in this topic

For me: Jimmy Clausen.

Clausen is hands down the worst thing to ever happen to this team. His 2010 was far worse than David Carr or any other QB we ever had.. The offense was historically awful. At least Weinke's 1-15 season had us in a lot of games and there were moments of possible greatness there. Kerry Collins took us to a NFC championship game.

Clausen is Rodney Pete..in that first half of that game where he had 15 yrds but for a season n probally the rest of his career. I was begging for David Carr to come back..

I would call the suicide hotline on Sundays as I was so depressed by Q1 seeing 12 passes batted to the ground or sail out of bounds.

He is symbolically all of the Panther's failures in one person to me.

^This sums it up. I could go old school too if I wanted to flex knowlwsge of team history but to ignore Clausen because he is recent is just dumb. He could be the worst player of the last two decades, in the whole NFL. Going to the stadium and sitting through his panicky throw always and horrible decisions would have me so pissed off. Then you add to the fact that Hurney almost traded away our 2011 first rounder to move up for Clausen? Now I have to sit and watch that bum consume a valuable roster space while wearing a fuging hoodie on the sidelines. Jimmy Clausen, hands down, the worst. And I am a bonafide Carr hater and Fua hater and Davidds-Garrardo hater.

A pretty strong argument can be made for Clausen.

I remember I was with a buddy when I heard we'd picked him. As I recall, I face palmed and said something not meant for polite company, primarily because there were still good receivers on the board.

When they drafted LaFell, I felt better. Tried to be as optimistic as I could about Clausen, but it was eventually useless.

These days, I wonder how much that pick contributed to the demise of Marty Hurney.

I guess some might say in that sense, it may have had some value after all.

1. Jimmy Clausen - Only player to ever make me question my Panther fanhood and wish that David Carr or Weinke would come back... I would take a revolving door of Rodney Peete, Vinny Testeverde, and Brian St. Pierre all season long than to never see him suit up in the black & blue ever again.... no stats needed to support... enough said

2. Rashard Anderson - 23rd pick in the 1st round of the 2000 draft, 2 seasons with the Panthers starting in 9 games. He played in only 27 games, managing a single interception. He did not play in either the 2002 or 2003 seasons as a result of substance abuse suspensions by the league...

3. Rae Carruth - picked with the 27th pick of the 1st round in the 1997 draft, spent three seasons with the Panthers. He finished his career with 62 catches totaling 4 touchdowns and 804 yards... Then murdered his pregnant girlfriend...

There may have been some worse players then those mentioned above, but I definitely factored in how high they were taken in the draft because it makes them that much worse to the franchise in my opinion...

Mother-fuckin' Norberto Davids-Garrido. I can't tell how many times my Dad and I yelled at his ass in the late 90s. Taking his wife's last name....shoulda known when he did that he had no balls.

You know what's depressing about this topic?

The fact that there are so many good options to choose from :(

Offense: Delhomme

you gotta be trolling....Delhomme's big game resume prior to Tommy John is what QBs dream of

Yes he was mentioned in my post. Slow footed s.o.b.

I'm 27 and it's hard for me to identify bad players from the early days because I was still a kid and looked up to all the players. I'm sure it's similar for guys even younger than me. It's a terrible precedent to start calling everyone 2003 bandwagon fans because they don't have a strong working knowledge of the George Seifert era. Guys like Nick Hayden and Jimmy Clausen deserve the fanbase's ire even if it's recent history.

Nick Hayden. How that man if still in the league is beyond me, he's been stealing money for years. At least he's the cowgirls problem now

The thirst for delhomme is real in here.. You guys need some prozac or xanax bad haha so pathetic. If you think Delhomme was a GOOD qb then you have mental health issues that need to be addressed immediately.

    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history.
    • Also, Greg is counting 20M against the cap over the next two...that's a big amount for a TE, even as great as he is.  This year he has a bit of leverage. Important piece of the passing and now running game. High cap number, and we are trying to free up space to sign the G's. Extremely healthy past.   He's just leaning on DG to extend him, and I think that we likely do....although it's not imperative.
